I went to a 4yo’s birthday party yesterday and the mum was wearing a pretty sundress. She’s very stylish and I thought I’d seen it on the cover of a Sunday supplement and that it was designer. I was glad that the mum did exactly what I do when someone compliments me on an outfit (afterwards I always silently kick myself in the shins). She said “£19.99 Sainsbury’s”. And now I hope she forgives me for passing this on. I couldn’t find the Tu/Sainsbury’s version but after a bit of shopping around have located the Marc Jacobs dress it’s based on. The Saino’s version is only a few hundred quid cheaper.
A quick ps. as I’ve spent a lot of time looking at frocks over the last couple of weeks. But very small ones. My lovely friend who I call The Wife has twin girls, and she invited me over to help myself to their baby clothes. As a mum of two boys I couldn’t help but squeal. A lot. This newborn size woollen dress and cardie combo is particularly cute. I tried to put a hand or foot in shot to give a sense of scale but decided to spare you the close up of the attractive mottled skin. I have to fess up to having bought the shoes myself. They are about the size of my little finger. Maybe I should have ironed the outfit first too. Oh well. Would have been a first.
